Jennette McCurdy and Detroit Pistons player Andre Drummond have just gone public with a romance that first blossomed on Twitter. Andre had been featuring Jennette in his #WCW (Woman Crush Wednesdays) tweets for weeks before he finally got the attention of the former Nickelodeon star — and even a follow. From there, the pair began to exchange tweets privately before meeting in person and hitting it off.
Once Jennette and Andre started chatting online, they discovered that they had a real connection and right away, Andre began doing some wooing in the form of several gifts sent to her Los Angeles home including flowers, a hat, a teddy bear, and a Detroit Pistons hoodie — all of which she shared photos of online.
Then, after what appears to have been their first meeting last Thursday (during which Jennette tweeted a photo that she excitedly captioned, “With @DRE_DRUMMOND_ ahhhh!!!”), the pair went public during a weekend visit to Disneyland. “Disneyland day with @DRE_DRUMMOND_ @NathanKress @MadisenHill woooooooo,” Jennette tweeted on Sunday.
While things between them seem to have just gotten started, they appear to be quite infatuated with each other and last night, Andre took Jennette out for a romantic dinner.
Late Tuesday night, Jennette, 21, and Andre, 20, were spotted at the popular Beverly Hills eatery, Madeo. As they left hand in hand, a TMZ photographer caught up with the pair and asked them if it was “easy to find chemistry with 140 characters or less,” to which Jennette enthusiastically replied, ”Yep!”
Although Jennette and Andre may have the chemistry they need to carry on a healthy, fun relationship, one thing they don’t have in common is their height (and that’s putting it lightly). Jennette stands at just 5’3″ while her baller boyfriend is a whopping 7 feet tall!
Just to give you an idea of the height difference:
